Naseem is 49 years old and the mother of three children. Her husband is a hawker who sells fruit chat. He must feed the entire family and cover household expenses on his earnings. But due to a lack of capital he is not in a position to buy extra fruit for his business.

So Naseem is applying for a 20,000 PKR loan through BRAC Pakistan so her husband can buy different types of ingredients such as fresh fruits, yogurt, dried fruits, etc. for his business. This loan should help him increase the size of his business, improve his sales and earn him the maximum in profits.

Naseem wishes to say she is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
